Bending Plexiglass

I have been envisioning creating some sculptural work similar to the pin pieces I've been making in the past, but on a much larger scale. Instead of using the thin Lexan and insect-collecting pins I normally use with the small work, I would use plexiglass and steel rods. My problem is that I would need to get the plexiglass to bend so that the work could have the same nice curves that the smaller pieces have. I've tried a heat gun and that didn't work well at all, so I decided to consult the YouTube. Ask and you shall receive.
